My book Creating Stories has received two new five-star reviews thanks to Booksprout
I found this book interesting and offering a lot of great information on what I need to help me get my story out of my head and onto paper. Excellent guide. Patricia Eroh
Hank Quense is the successful author of several series, and shares the rules of writing from perhaps the best, in my opinion, viewpoint. He knows what sells. He reminds us that our primary job as a writer is not to record egotistical spewage (my word), but to entertain, inform, and maybe educate the reader. So he shows how to write in such a way that readers actually want to keep reading. That’s exactly what I need.
This is not a grammar book, by any means, but an accessible discourse on how to best use the medium of written language to connect with an audience.
And I truly appreciate his use of so many personal experiences, and examples of how he applied the principles he shares.
This statement sounds so very wrong, but this was the first textbook which was actually fun. Ghostriver
Creating Stories is available in both ebook and print book editions:
Learn how to develop your idea into a story with author Hank Quense. During his Story Design series of lectures you’ll build your characters, create a plot, design the scenes and more. After completing the student assignments, you’ll be ready to write the first draft.

After using these topics to develop your story, you’ll be ready to write the first draft.
This story design process can be used on any type of story. It can be used to develop a short story, a novel, a script, a play and even a memoir. After all, each of these types really is just a story, and all stories use the same story design elements.
Bring your story ideas along and let’s work on it together!
And for a limited time, it has a low introductory price that will expire shortly. You can get it here: https://bit.ly/35wncwN

It was posted on Amazon in Canada and on Goodreads by Susan’s Reviews. She gave it 5 stars.
This workshop provides middle school children with a simple, step-by-step approach to creating and developing a short story. All aspects of storytelling – plot, character, scene building, etc., are covered in the various chapters, which have interactive videos to guide the young writers as they write their sample stories.
Useful online worksheets are provided so that the young readers can develop future storylines without having to read or listen to the workshop again, if they don’t want to keep repeating the workshop for each new story they develop. I found this workshop informative and easy to follow, and the videos broke up the written word so that the short attention spans of young workshop writers will be redirected back to the task at hand. This workshop provides all the basic tools to create a full and interesting story, and the author provides and analyzes his own short story at the very end to illustrate how to use the various work boxes.
I highly recommend this workshop, which should prove effective to teach young writers on how to create their own short stories.
